Fox & Friends: Lesson On The American Way

Reported by Deborah - April 12, 2006

Today there were two stories repeated on F&F with a similar message. One was about workers getting fired because they went to an immigration rally without permission and the other about a Councilman who refused to take the oath of office because he didn't agree with he Bush Administration. 4/12/06

According to the New York Times, 21 women, were fired from the Wolverine Meat Packing Plant in Detroit after attending an immigration rally on March 27th. Wolverine managers claim that a small number of workers asked for permission but one of the women said that although she followed policy, she was fired anyway.

On F&F after one of the repeats of the story ED Hill and Steve Doocy provided their lesson onthe American way of life.
Doocy said, " People want to become citizens ? If you get a job, show up." Then ED Hill added,"Otherwise, sneak into France. They have a good gig there."

The second story of Basil Dalack, a newly elected councilman in Florida who refused to sign the oath of office, was repeated and analyzed by Napolitano who said that the oath would be to the constitution and not the current government.Comments were made that he shouldn't take the job and there was a tone of disbelief in the coverage. There were phone calls taken from viewers with equal pro/con views on the issue. Essentially, the story was made into a big deal.

comment: What could be more patriotic than taking advantage of our rights as Americans. There was a lesson for sure but maybe not the one that FNC intended.
